Life - Everyone Has A Button - Poem by Paul Warren

What makes you jump or makes you scared
When young what was it that you mates to you dared
Was it the thunder, lightning, wind or the driving rain
Or being alone when at home you remain

Is it now watching the latest thriller movie on the screen
Where something jumps out looking really mean
Perhaps it's driving on a dark lonely country road
With no-one around whilst your doubts were sowed

Everyone has a button that can be pressed
That will make you terrified in your quest
As a mechanism to make you way in this life
And to keep you safe and away from the strife.

    Everyone has a button that can be pressed
    That will make you terrified n your quest
    As a mechanism to make you way in this life
    And to keep you safe and away from the strife.
